Good standard Mexican food. Two particular favorites are the Tortilla Soup with nice avocado chunks and the signature El Nepal dip. If you are traveling it's a good bet if you don't know the area restaurants.

Yes, there is! This was a pleasant surprise. Good Mexican food with charming atmosphere. I had the taco salad, my husband had steak fajitas and others had enchalada and poblano chilis. The chips and salsa were better than most, and they actually had tamarindo soda.

More authentic than I expected for Calhoun. Juan's tacos were very good. Generous portions. Tomatilla salsa not hot, but has great flavor.

The food at El Nopal is great but it is a bit overpriced for this type of Mexican restaurant. Given the choices of food in the area this one is hard to beat.
